Nolan.  Many of you already know who he is, others of you will only recognize this button that has resided on my sidebar for 3 years.

Until today. Today I'm taking the button off my site because....

NOLAN KICKED CANCER IN THE JELLY BEANS!

This video tells the story way better than I could.

Watching that video just now was not so easy for me.  Those were hard, hard days in the beginning.  Cancer touched us all in a new way. Nolan was still a toddler when he was diagnosed with leukemia 3 years ago.  After 3 grueling years of chemotherapy, steroids, blood tests, house arrest (usually on the holidays), infusions, spinal taps and so, so much more, he is finally done with the chemotherapy treatments! He no longer has leukemia and he is free to go on and live life to the fullest.

I couldn't be more proud of his parents who have weathered this storm with bravery and grace.  And I couldn't be more proud of Nolan.  You are the real super-hero buddy!
